'Funny, devastating, miraculous, and delightful. This is an extraordinary life story, extraordinarily told.' Bri Lee, author of Eggshell Skull '[Rose] takes us to the edge of a volcanic crater of grief, passion and spirituality. Dazzling and devastating.' Tim Rogers, author of Detours Born on the island of Tasmania, Heather Rose falls in love with nature, but a family tragedy at age twelve sets her on a course to explore life and all its mysteries. Here is a wild barefoot girl keen for adventure, a seeker of truth initiated in ancient rituals, a fledgling writer who becomes one of Australia's most acclaimed authors, a fierce mother whose body may falter at any moment. Nothing Bad Ever Happens Here is a luminous, compelling and utterly surprising memoir by the bestselling author of Stella Prize-winner The Museum of Modern Love and Bruny. Heartbreaking and beautiful, this is a love story brimming with courage and joy against all odds, one that will bring wonder, light and comfort to all who read it.
